María M. Portuondo – American Convergence: Science and Technology in Colonial Latin America

March 28, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
CUNY Graduate Center, Room 9207, 365 Fifth Avenue
New York, New York 10016 United States

The essential backdrop of the history of the region we now call Latin America is the centuries-long process of negotiation between the different social, religious, cultural and political registers of the Indigenous, African and European peoples who came to inhabit the area. The resulting American scientific and technological convergence involved the combination and recombination of practices whose exact origins are difficult to trace. This talk proposes a framework for the study of the scientific and technological registers of the American convergence. It recognizes the hybrid, complex and local nature of the convergence and explores these through three kinds of human activities: learning, moving and making.
